Rose at the Regional Meeting 9th December 2017

 Rose Hutchinson Regional Programme Action Officer

Rose talked to us about the Kori Project in Sierra Leone which she has recently visited.  The Kori Project has been a long term project of SI Thames Valley, as well as other voluntary organisations.  One of the goals of the project is to try to eliminate FGM, and this is being reduced.  Rose talked about her time in Freetown and about the new library and the money raised through legacy and fundraising.  To raise money local people breed pigs and the local piggery has 60 piglets at the moment. Money is also raised through making soap – ‘Clean Conscience’ soap
